I have reviewed  a great variety of food products in my pantry or sent to me by companies that I know and trust. Some of these foods I eat on occasion and others on a regular basis for its convenience and pure tastiness. This page was created because I wanted to provide detailed, trust-worthy reviews for other financially savvy foodies before we/you splurge on pricey products! Hope the reviews come in handy!

A few things to note:

  • I consider myself a pretty critical reviewer, but always try to be fair and follow up criticisms with descriptions or comments
  • All the opinions & scores I give reflect my personal opinion only, unless otherwise stated
  • Reviews are usually extremely detailed, but are hopefully informative and helpful to you!
  • All items enclosed in*_____*” are complimentary samples from the manufacturer. This fact WILL NOT impact my review or the score I give.
  • Scores range from 1 -10. Anything <5 points “I would not buy this if I were you” and 10 being “It’ll probably be in my pantry forever!!”
